7:02 am
>> not too happy. get to that coming up. first, president obama and congress go back to work today in one of the big items on their to do list is a deal to cut the budget deficit and raise the federal debt limit. joining us is senior white house correspondent bill plante. what is the latest on the negotiations? >> reporter: they are deadlocked. still, no further schedule of talks between the white house and coning. republicans remain opposed to any kind of new taxes. and democrats are just as adamant that there has to be some kind of new revenue. congress has raise the debt ceiling 102 times since it was first instituted in 1917. and ten times in the last decade. but never before have the stakes been so high where democrats and republicans so unwilling to budge. norm is a longtime student of congress. >> normally, what you see in these negotiations is tough stances but at least some willingness to go, not halfway, but a quarter of the way where
7:03 am
the other side is. >> reporter: in 1983, republican president ronald regulariagan supported a rise. he wrote. nor have democrats always been in favor of raising the limit. in 2006, then senator barack obama voted against an increase, a voed he later admitted was a mistake, but that didn't stop representative michele bachmann facing him on a recent "face the nation" appearance. >> someone more eloquent than myself when they said to deal at this point where we have to raise the debt ceiling is a failure of leads. that was barack obama when he was running for the united states presidency. >> reporter: the treasury department says if congress didn't raise the debt ceiling by august 2nd, the federal
7:04 am
government won't be able to pay its debts. a move that norm says could send the weak economy off the clip-of-cliff. >> i'm not so sure this time we get a deal until after we cross the rubacon and see a breach in the debt limit. >> reporter: some talk in congress of a so-called minideal. a deal that would take what is on the table that both sides agree on and extend the debt limit for, say, a year or so. but the white house doesn't like that because they feel in any kind of deal like that, they would lose leverage. >> bill plante, thank you very much. joining us is two senate comecomers elected in november. chris coons of delaware and rob johnson of wisconsin. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> you're skipping your fourth of july break in an effort to get something done here on the debt ceiling. senator johnson, can something get done? >> i sure think so. i think a growing group of, i
7:05 am
think, senate republicans and house republicans that willing to increase the debt ceiling as long as we actually fix the problem. the way you fix the problem, i've always felt a two than had step process. first, we have to institute the spending caps, the fiscal discipline before we start getting into the details. you know, the house has proposed cut off the baseline the first two years. and then provide a statutory cap to spending to put us on a path to balance the budget and pass the balanced budget amendment and i think the only way to solve it long term. >> i'm concerned we are not able to meet america's obligations and and i think we need to get back to work. i hope the republicans will hear us saying yes. democrats in the congress are willing to meet them and to make trillions of dollars in reductions to federal spending but we need to do it in a responsible way over a decade. the next deck eight, we can cut 4 trillion dollars in federal spending and and' chive real
7:06 am
savings and plans on the table since march to do it in a bipartisan responsible way. it is their refusal to consider fi increase in revenue that has stalled the talks so far and i am hopeful we will be able to move past that this week's negotiations. >> senator coons, would you agree to a minideal, let's say, six months just to kind of control the volatility and the uncertainty with the market? >> i do think that we can't afford to default on america's financial obligations. what is coming up on august 2nd, something we have warned about for months is the equivalent of defaulting on america's mortgage and i would support a short-term deal if it were part of getting to $4 trillion in savings that all of the bipartisan deficit and debt commissions have agreed is the minimum we need to do to put a floor under our economy and to get america going again. >> senator johnson, are you willing to let than august 2nd deadline pass, knowing what it could potentially do to the economy of this country?
7:07 am
we hear just -- we heard a second ago in bill plante's piece the economy potentially falling off the cliff. with re w are we willing to allow that happen? >> the democrats have no plans on the table other than the president's budget that lost 0 to 97. if they have a plan, they haven't shown it to us. they did not pass a budget, haven't passed a budget in over two years. should by law pass one by april 15th. lpt appropriation bills should have been passed by june 10th. none of that has happened. the only thing happened is sporadic negotiations behind closed doors. sounds like we have a basis for a deal here. senator coons is talking about doing something over a long period of time. that is true. what a stat tore cap bill would do, put us on a glide path towards balancing the budget and let's send a balanced budget to the states. let's let the people decide if they want to instill the fiscal discipline on ourselves and let's send it to the states and let the people decide.
7:08 am
i'm happy to let the american people decide this issue issue. >> senator coons, quickly, if you had to make one compromise for your party what would it be? >> i am willing to make significant cuts in diagram spending and entitlement reform but we need the republicans to meet us halfway and be willing to make reduction in pentagon spending and tax reforms that lowers rates, i creases the baits and increases federal revenue. we have had a balance bipartisan proposal on the table since march in front of our budget committee. we need the republicans to hear us say yes. >> you guys are back to work this week. a lot of work to do and still no meetings scheduled with the president. that's not a great sign but see what happens and i'm sure you both will keep us posted and we will be watching. thank you both very much. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> thank you. here is erica. the jury in the casey anthony murder case deliberates for a second day today after dramatic closing arguments. correspondent troy roberts of 48 hours mystery is in orlando this morning with the latest for us.
7:09 am
good morning, troy. >> reporter: good morning, erica. after 30 days of testimony and 91 witnesses the jury deliberated yesterday. but not until they heard from the prosecutors for the final time. who urged them to find casey anthony guilty. >> the question is who killed caylee. >> reporter: prosecutor linda laid out beginning with her first statement to police in july 2008 of casey anthony. >> every other statement on that form is a lie! >> reporter: verdict took particular umbrage of the defense team charge it was investigators who twisted the truth. >> the most well documented liar ever seen in a courtroom accuses everybody of perjury, of fraud, of lying. the irony is rich, indeed.
7:10 am
>> reporter: prosecutors maintain casey killed her 2-year-old girl because she wanted to be unburdened by the responsibilities of motherhood. prosecutor john ashton, we, through forensics, tied casey to the crime. >> no conceivable reason anybody would put duct tape on the face of a dead child. people don't make accidents look like murder! that's absurd verdict scoffed the defense' assertion that caylee drowned in the family's swimming pool. >> if this truly was an accident in the pool, caylee anthony would have been flown floating in the pool. >> reporter: caylee's body was found in the woods walking distance from the anthony's home. at times, casey anthony shook her head no and muttered under her breath as prosecutors took aim at her character, calling her moinths a pathological liar.
7:11 am
>> the only way to find caylee if they listen to what i say and i'm trying to help them and they are not letting me help them. >> reporter: jurors left with a final question. >> whose life was better? that's the only question you need to answer. there is your answer. >> last week, a former member of casey anthony's defense team, linda bodden told me from the outset she never believed casey would walk away a free woman. she says they wanted to primarily focusing that casey anthony avoided the death penalty joining us this morning is vinnie politan, an anchor for "in session." you are a former prosecutor and sent a lot of time in that courtroom the last six weeks. >> absolutely. good morning. yesterday was such a day. the first day of deliberations
7:12 am
for this jury. it was coming off the prosecutor's final closing argument and i think they had an advantage by going last. and they got a fresh jury. because the first day of closing arguments was long and that jury was exhausted. they came back yesterday refreshed, open ears and the prosecutors went after them. >> so being there in court, did you notice any sort of reaction from any members of the jury, whether it was yesterday during the rebuttal from the prosecution or when they were hearing from the defense? >> let me tell you what happened yesterday. this jury deliberated over five hours yesterday, right? they come back at the end of the day and the judge is about to send them home. what we always looked for, those of us who cover trials for a living, right? what we always look for is when the jury enters the courtroom, where are they looking? these folks beelined for the jury box and not making eye contact with the defendant, the defense team or any of those lawyers. from my experience, that's a bad sign for the defense. if they don't even want to look
7:13 am
at the defendant when they re-enter that courtroom. then the judge sent them home for fireworks and we will see what happens today. >> you heard from our correspondent at 48 hours he spoke with a former member of casey anthony's defense team who said really she never believed necessarily she was innocent but the goal was to spare her from the death penalty. she is facing serious charges among them first-degree murder and graeted child abuse and manslaughter. what are we looking at in terms of a possible sentence if convicted? >> this is a death penalty case. if she is convicted of first-degree murder and if the jury finds premeditation or find fell me murder then this case moves on to the penalty phase and the same jurors who found her guilty will decide whether she lives or die. >> that is for the first-degree murder. other charges there? >> life for second degree and 30 years if it's aggravated manslaughter and obstruction charges but looking at serious time.
7:14 am
my goodness if she is found guilty for the death of caylee in any of those fir three counts, you're looking at 15 to 30 years in prison. >> it can be very difficult, obviously, to read a jury and it should be probably if they are doing their job correctly. based on your experience and based on what you've seen the last several weeks how quickly do you think we could get a verdict? >> all right. it's called the florida factor, erica. i've covered cases all over this country and for some reason, juries in texas and in florida are just a little bit faster than the rest of the country. it's not they don't think about this stuff as much but it comes quicker. that is why on tuesday, the second day of deliberations i'm like a firefighter waiting for that alarm to go off and slide down the pole and spring into action. the only difference is we're not eating chili down here. >> when you get that call, give me a call. nice to have you with us this morning, thanks. >> sure. a programming note for you. "48 hours mystery" will be
7:15 am
airing a prime time special on the anthony trial after the jury does render its decision in the case so stay tuned for that. we will update out that programming note as well. >> a half hour morning call issued once they do make an issue, so everyone will know. >> everyone will be ready. >> only imagine the scene there at the courthouse. here is jeff glor with another check of today's headlines for you. >> good morning to everyone. officials say there is hope in the search for seven americans lost at sea. the warm water they say could hem passengers survive. passengers 60 miles south of san felipe when a storm cap-sized their boat on sunday. 20 americans were on the annual july fourth fishing trip. at least one was killed. survivors clung to coolers and life vests for hours before they were rescued. >> everybody came in and helped. you know? we are grateful for that. otherwise, possibly he could still be out there. >> officials say the survivors round are in good condition.

former imf chief dominique traus kahn may escape charges that he sexually assaulted a hotel maid here in new york, but
7:33 am
he may face new charges today from a french woman who says he tried to rape her eight years ago. cbs news correspondent mark phillips is in london with the latest on this for us this morning. mark, good morning. >> good morning, chris. well it's lawyers at dawn in paris this morning. a french woman is poised to file attempted rape charges against dominique strauss-kahn and his lawyers are threatening a lawsuit against her. tristane banon is the other woman in dominique strauss-kahn's legal life. she claims, and she said so on a french tv program four years ago, that strauss-kahn tried to rape her when she was interviewing him back in 2003. the producers bleeped the name out of the accusation at the time. but with strauss-kahn accused of serious sexual misbehavior in new york, his french accuser has apparently decided now is the time to start legal proceedings against him in france, as well. tristane banon's lawyer says he'll file a formal federal
7:34 am
complaint for attempted rape against dominique strauss-kahn in a paris court this evening. this comes, of course, just as the american case against strauss-kahn seems to be unraveling. and as there is increasing talk that his political career in france may be salvageable. so he has instructed his lawyers to file a countersuit for defamation. clearly, there's a game of legal chicken being played. the stakes for tristane banon just got higher. and dominique strauss-kahn's political life hangs in the balance, as well. between the sordid details of the new york case, and the attempted rape allegation in france, he may be damaged goods, even for a french politician. >> even if it wasn't a rape, we'll see what can happen from the initial point of view, i think that the situation was not really a dignified situation for someone who would like to become the next president in france.
7:35 am
>> strauss-kahn's lawyers have called tristane banon's version of events imaginary. under the french system the charges would be investigated, even before getting to court. a process that could take years. and this long after the event, of course, producing evidence becomes a real problem. chris? >> that's cbs' mark phillips in london for us this morning. joining us now from paris is political scientice expert on french relations. >> good morning. >> good morning the lawyer for french journalist tristane banon will file charges alleging that dominique strauss-kahn allegedly attempted to rape her in 2003. this is yet another legal hurdle that he must clear. >> yes. it complicates the entire story. but there is the beginning of something i would call scandal fatigue in france. we've seen so many turn of the
7:36 am
situation and this one comes nearly as enough is enough. what will we hear next. >> let me ask you this. what do you believe prompted this woman to take so long to finally come forward? been nine years here. >> well, that's exactly what most frenchmen are asking themselves. it comes at a particular moment, and the calendar is, of course, not innocent. what motivates? a spirit of revenge? search for publicity? or a deep wound that explodes? at the moment, you cannot predict. >> now strauss-kahn's lawyers in paris immediately responded yesterday, calling this incident imaginary. and they plan to sue, countersue, for slander. so let me ask you, what kind of case does he have? >> well, obviously i don't know. but in cases like that, it's
7:37 am
normal in france that you would immediately sue your accuser if you feel your case is strong enough. i mean, what we are witnessing is a battle for the heart of public opinion. there's a sense of suspicion. so immediately the lawyers of dominique strauss-kahn would say, well, it's imaginary we are suing her. >> let me ask you this, the apparent collapse of the case against dominique strauss-kahn here in the u.s., there are some reports this morning that all charges will be dropped, either on or before his next court case on the 18th of july. can he make a political comeback in france? i know it was widely reported he was a front-runner for potentially being elected president of france. but can he have any type of political comeback on any front in your country? >> yes. but can he be a candidate for the next presidential elections?
7:38 am
the answer is probably no. the french people know too much about him. more than they would like to know. the president in france is a symbolic figure that incarnates the country and not only rules the country, and probably the french would say, well, it's too bad. he's a good economist, he could have been a great president, but we don't think it's proper to have him as our next president. >> thank you very much for your time this morning. we appreciate speaking with you. >> thank you. >> all right now here's erica. >> chris, thanks. up next, the texas town that simply can't afford to have any cops. why people say those budget cuts are a costly and serious mistake. you're watching "the early show." for the veterans who protect our freedoms working with today's va i can use my license anywhere in the u.s. in the city or the wide open spaces it's amazing how you can grow as a doctor

ya. the republican field added another candidate over the weekend. michigan congressman thaddeus mcardle. if you're a candidate, that's a prime working day. jan crawford is in washington with ]ñmore. >> reporter: that's true. politicking on the fourth of july. let's say it, about as american as baseball and, you know, apple pie. it may have been a holiday, like you said, but a lot of those republican candidates were still out there hard at work especially in two key early states. >> one, two, three, four, who are you going to vote for? ♪ romney that's who ♪ >> reporter: it was mitt romney headlining the parade and sounding every bit the front-runner. >> our president has failed us. the recession is deeper because of our president. >> reporter: romney leads the current field with solid poll numbers and impressive fund-raising dollars. in the past three months his
8:02 am
campaign estimates he raked in $20 million. sharing the spotlight in amherst was former utah governor jon huntsman, the most moderate of the candidates vying for the anti-romney vote. huntsman has already ruled out competing in iowa and understands new hampshire is a must-win state. >> it is absolutely central to victory. this is a state you must win. >> reporter: in iowa, which votes first in a presidential contest, candidates were fighting for the social conservative vote. there were long shots newt gingrich and rick santorum. as well as tea party sensation michele bachmann. a recent poll has the minnesota congresswoman in a statistical dead heat with romney while gingrich and santorum barely made a dent in the single digits. tim pawlenty also polled poorly there.
8:03 am
he raised a disappointing $4.2 million this quarter and has had no public event over the holiday weekend. but those in the bottom half of the poll can take comfort in the fact that the early polls don't tell us that much. this time four years ago mike huckabee was way down at 4% right where rick santorum is today. huckabee ended up winning iowa. >> jan crawford in washington this morning, thanks. joining us from des moines to talk about his presidential campaign, former pennsylvania senator rick santorum. good to have you with us this morning, sir. >> thank you, erica, that's a pretty good lead-in. we think being at the back of the pack is not a bad place to be in iowa. working hard is what you need to do here. >> there you go. you and jan already worked out one of my questions. we've got that one out of the way. >> yeah, appreciate it. >> let's look at the issues facing americans. the obama administration saying there needs to be a deal here by july 22nd on raising the debt
8:04 am
limit. this will require a compromise on both sides. put yourself in those shoes. if you are president, and you were dealing with this right now, what would you be asking for in terms of a compromise from both your own party and from the democrats? how do you bring them together? >> i think we need a short-term solution and a long-term solution. the short-term is we've got to come together on spending reductions. look, the bottom line is that we're spending over 50% more than normal on government as far as the percentage of gdp. so the problem is a spending problem with the deficit. it's not a tax problem. taxes are a little lower. but just a percent or two below what the normal is. you got to go where the problem is and that's spending. we need to have some spending reductions. the real issue here is we need -- i served in the senate. i know how it works. you need a backstop. you need something that forces members of congress to do what you know they have to do but there's no political will to do it. that's why i've supported a
8:05 am
balanced budget amendment to the constitution. we have to have that now it. won't take effect for seven or eight years because it will take time to ratify it. five years after it's ratified that it's implemented. it gives you a ramp to be able to get to a balanced but ed bud. to get back to fiscal responsibility. i would say do a long-term fix. >> get behind that mini deal. we've got a lot to cover here. so i move quickly from one topic to the next. when you look at this crowded field of which you are a part of, of republican candidates, a recent poll two-thirds say they couldn't pick one candidate out there they'd be happy with. that has to be tough for to you hear as one of those candidates. americans want answers specifically on the economy. give me a specific on where you would create jobs for people who just want food on the table. >> yeah, well, i'm not disappointed by that number because as someone sitting in the back of the pack and probably has the lowest name recognition, they're probably
8:06 am
not talking about me. there is an opportunity where there are folks at the top of the ticket, folks who are seen as the leaders, are those that are unhappy with that. that's a good thing as far as i'm concerned. as far as creating job, spending the next three days here in iowa, talking about creating jobs, reducing the regulatory burden, all of which will create jobs. energy itself just allowing for drilling of natural gas and oil and mining of coal and producing ethanol here in iowa, all of those things will create jobs in america. very important to lower the cost of fuel to stop -- stock the headwinds of the economy. a zero% tax on all manufacturing facilities in america. we need to get america back to work. the best way to do so is to create powerful incentives for people to locate manufactures jobs here, whether they're ag manufacturing jobs and processing jobs or steel jobs
8:07 am
anyplace else across this country. >> you mentioned a couple sectors both manufacturing and energy and that zero tax. but what about revenue because even if you want to cut back on government involvement and spending, money has to come in from somewhere. >> yeah, the biggest problem with revenue is growth. the bottom line here is that if we have a dynamic growth and people are put back to work, those revenues come right back up. if you look at the percentage of, again, percentage of revenues versus gdp which is a constant measure. under the higher rates of clinton or the lower rates of bush, they came in about the same depending on the growth level. so the key there is growing the economy, getting people back to work and having those people paying taxes. >> before we let you go, you're known for your conservative stance on a number of social issues. michele bachmann has entered the race giving you a run for your money. you have similar stance on key issues here. how do you grab some of that
8:08 am
momentum from her? >> well, look, this is all about hard work. these early primary states, i understand the buzz around some of these candidates whether her m herman cain, michele bachmann. i'm out here hard at work. meeting people at diners and their living rooms. people in iowa and new hampshire they want to meet the candidates. they want to kick the tires. particularly iowa is a caucus states. folks who really looked at these candidates and studied hard not who washington or new york says is the favorite. i like the fact that i've been here more than anybody else. i'm going to continue to work very hard here. i think we'll surprise some people come february. >> you've got a positive outlook. we'll give you that. >> you bet. >> thanks for your time this morning. >> thanks, appreciate being on. >> how is this for maka mixed message, it's early but time is running out.

8:10 am
says he thinks an agreement can be reached. >> it's their refusal to consider any increase in revenue that has really stalled the talks so far. i'm hopeful we'll be able to move past that in this week's negotiation. >> an autopsy is scheduled for today to determine if a body that's been found is that of missing indiana university student lauren spierer. her remains were found floating in a creek on sunday. she was last seen more than a month ago near the campus in bloomington, 50 miles south of indianapolis. rising water might complicate efforts to clean up the oil spill on the yellowstone river. melting snow will send river waters gushing. today expected to peak in billings. on friday a pipeline ruptured sending over 42,000 galness of

8:17 am
than i have as a nonsmoker, and so it's just become a part of me. >> reporter: yet he considers himself at an expert at quitting. >> i have tried cold turkey. i have tried just sucking down mints like it was my job. i have tried electronic cigarettes. those really, very few things that i have not tried when it comes to quitting. >> reporter: his latest inspiration to quit, a 63-mile marathon bike ride at the end of the summer. >> i'd rather ride my bike and be in bliss on my bike than pay eight bucks for something that i know is killing me. >> reporter: dunphy's currently using nicotine patches to quit. and he's one of the 7 million americans who have tried the smoking cessation drug chantix. the fda recently issued a warning about the drug, citing concerns of heart problems for smokers with existing heart disease. but according to new research, they're not the only ones at
8:18 am
risk. one in 28 smokers who used chantix for one year suffers an average cardiovascular event such as heart attack and stroke. >> the findings do, indeed, concern me. because the goal of smoking cessation, as i said, is to reduce heart attacks and reduce strokes and reduce, you know, cardiac deaths. but we have the most widely used drug on the market that is doing exactly the opposite of what it should be doing. >> reporter: drugmaker pfizer disputes the interpretation of the latest data and maintains it's still an important treatment option. >> many more patients stop smoking on chantix than on placebo. and when you stop changing there are other changes in your body, other changes in your health. over time those changes are extremely positive. >> i've been smoking half a pack a day. >> reporter: despite the risks, dunphy says he might try chantix again. >> i really felt like chantix would do it for me, then i'd see that as being worth some risk. because smoking is a lifetime
8:19 am
addiction. >> reporter: anything to finally shake the past, and ride into a smoke-free future. >> and now dr. ashton joins us this morning to talk more about this. this is an $800 million marketplace we're talking about here. this is not the first time that the fda has looked into this drug. >> correct. >> what are some of the other side effects that do exist for chantix. >> any time you talk about a medication. even if it's an over-the-counter medication, you always have to balance the risk versus the benefit. specifically with this prescription medication, in 2009, the fda actually issued a black box warning for psychiatric problems among patients taking chantix. and those could include anything from hostility, to depression, to suicidal behavior. so, again, you have to weigh the risks of the medication versus the risks of continuing to smoke, and the benefits with each, as well. >> all right if you're currently using chantix right now and you're worried about some 6 the hard risks, what are some of the warnings signs you need to know and be on high alert for?
8:20 am
>> these bear repeating because they're the same warning signs for anyone who may have cardiac and/or vascular disease. they include short ns of breath, chest pain, you can have pain ii your legs while walking. even if you're not on chantix and you have any of those symptoms you obviously want to seek immediate medical attention. >> what are some people's options? you hear this news about the deleting -- smoke stop -- or the stop smoking drug out there, you don't want to have any of these additional issues or side effects, so what are some safe options? >> when you talk about quitting smoking there are a plethora of options. they include everything from nicotine replacement therapy to hypnosis to other prescription medications, many people quit cold turkey. you want to make a plan, you want to institute that plan, and if you smoke, the single most important thing you can do is stop. >> unlike that poor guy who we just saw with the piece. he's tried everything. dr. ashton, thanks. >> you bet.

8:39 am
>> thanks so much. that's your latest weather. now over to erica. >> marysol, thanks. this morning prince william and catherine are waking up in canada's northwest territory. not too far from alaska. they got a big welcome last night in yellow knife. fairly tiny town. after a full day in prince edward island. which, of course, thousands of miles to the east. even the rain couldn't dampen everybody's spirits there. joinings us with more cbs news royal contributor victoria arbiter. i guess they're used to a little precipitation where they come from. >> they felt right at home. kate even declined an umbrella at one point, so that's how normal it felt. >> they had a jam-packed day yesterday. i would venture to say the highlights were the water birding, which was william landing the helicopter, and of course the dragon boat race. >> absolutely. i think yesterday was my favorite day on the tour so far. we saw a much less formal, much more relaxed side to the couple. william specifically requested to go water birding. it's an art form that the canadian air force has perfected and you can't really do it anywhere else in the world.
8:40 am
he very successfully took off and landed his seeking helicopter on the lake. while kate took pictures. she was busy taking pictures and waving to her husband. and then the dragon boat race. kate has talked about how competitive the couple are, that they can't complete a tennis game, because one of them is a sore loser. so we did see william come in first. he did give her a consolation hug at the end while she tried to push him in the water. so again, we saw a really playful side to the couple. >> it was a really cute moment to see that. there we see them -- look at him, hard at work there. >> he was not going to let her win. >> no, he wasn't. >> it was good to see them be a bit playful with one another there. today, what's on deck? >> as you mentioned yellow knife. there will be a walk-about. and then they're going to be treated to a demonstration of arctic sports. we're going to see the competitive spirit tyke kick in again. they're going to compete in a street hockey penalty shoot-out. so i'm hoping -- >> this i am really looking forward to. >> it's going to be on the rink, but there's no ice, of course, with the time of year. they're then going to go 30
8:41 am
minutes east of yellow knife where they're going to meet some of the canadian rangers. william and harry were made honorary rangers in 2009. >> that will be kind of fun. we can't look at all that's been going on without talking about what she's been wearing. i mean, does she knock it out of the park every time or what? >> she really does. every choice has been inspired. yesterday she arrived in prince edward island in an nautical themed dress which bears a striking resemblance to a costume worn by the character anne shirley in the anne of green gables adaptation. a mistake? i think not. >> she's a fan as well. >> that's right. the blue dress she wore in quebec is the exact same shade of blue as the flag of quebec. yesterday, fourth of july, she was wearing j. brand jeans, an american designer on the fourth of july. coincidence? again i think not. when we look at the impact, the queen joseph dress that she wore on sunday sold out in eight minutes. >> that's got to be a new record. it's amazing, i really need to get on these things a little
8:42 am
quicker. so with everything today, this is when they actually get their little break starting late tonight into tomorrow? >> yes. they've got a well-earned 24 hours off. tomorrow morning they're going to fly to alberta province. the press, their officials, the aides are all going on to calgary to resume the tour on thursday. william and kate have a whole 24 hours of down time, of private time. i think they're really going to enjoy that. >> everybody can use a break at this point. there's so much speculation. it's bad enough when you get married and people say so now that you're married, when are you having your baby. it's a million times worse when you're the princess. one little comment is being completely blown up. >> completely blown up. remember just after the wedding you and i talked about the fact that bump watch was going to start immediately. and it's like every little snippet people are jumping on. she threw out a passing comment to a young man about how beautiful his daughter was, he in turn said, thank you i wish you well in starting a family. she said yes, i hope so. suddenly that means she's trying for a baby, when is it going to happen. william and charles were both born within a year of their
8:43 am
parents' marriage. so poor kate, everyone is expecting march there to be a new heir to the throne. >> poor girl. >> it's a lot of pressure. everyone needs to back off. >> yes, well, my advice is enjoy your married life a little bit first. thanks. always nice to have you here. chris? >> thank you very much. how would you like to save money in your grocery bill and become part of an art project at the same time? three young men in los angeles got the idea and now it is spreading around the world. cbs news correspondent bill whitaker went out with them looking for the pick of the crop. >> most of us get our fruits and veggies from a grocery store or even a farmer's market. but these three friends get their produce from the busy streets of los angeles. >> ah, it is drive-by fruit. >> reporter: they started the fallen fruit collective, a project that finds and maps fruit that grows in public spaces. >> what's really wild is that this city offers so much organic produce. >> reporter: like bananas. >> yeah, bananas on the sidewalk
8:44 am
of the neighborhood. >> reporter: we talked and drove around l.a., and found a bounty. peaches, avocados, oranges, tomatoes, figs. >> there's more trees up here, too. >> reporter: and whether it's on the sidewalk. in a park. or hanging over someone's fence, this fruit is ripe for the picking. >> you took it all? >> reporter: while the fruit might be there to share, these three artists found that each city has rules about what you can and can't do. in los angeles, the city council told us that it's not illegal to pick public fruit. >> there's no nationals or state laws about public space or property. but the best thing in the world, i think, is to be a good neighbor, and you ask permission. >> reporter: this homeowner rolls out the welcome mat. what do you think about that, people coming by to pick your fruit? >> oh, we actually planted most of the plants out here so that people would do that. >> reporter: fallen fruit started seven years ago, as an art experiment, involving public
8:45 am
and private space. and it began to bring communities together. >> we started inviting the public to make jam with us. went to pick the fruit off the sidewalks of the neighborhood, not knowing each other. and see how many hundreds of jars every year we can make in three hours. and we did it over 700. >> reporter: they have mapped out free fruit trails in almost every city in the u.s. and have even made maps as far away as denmark. so you're like three johnny appleseeds, but way beyond apples? >> oh, way beyond apples, yes. we love all fruit, yes. >> reporter: now that love is fruitful, and multiplying. bill whitaker, cbs news, los angeles. >> what a great idea. and you can logon to to see if there is a map for your area.,,,,,,

when you're running for president you need to have campaign money and a solid political platform. but you also need a theme song.
8:48 am
and that tripped up one of the republican candidates as cbs news political correspondent jan crawford now tells us. welcome back. good to see you again this morning. >> hey, chris. you know, there is nothing like a good song to get people fired up at your rallies. but sometimes that can get the song writer fired up, too. ♪ happy days >> reporter: song writers had to be happy when franklin roosevelt adopted their 1929 hit "happy days are here again" for his '32 presidential campaign. 80 years later the song is still the unofficial anthem of the democratic party. but that may be the last time that candidates and composers have made beautiful music together. just last week, tea party favorite and gop presidential candidate michele bachmann pumped up the crowd with liberal rocker tom petty's "american girl." apparently bachmann doesn't quite fit petty ate vision of that girl. he quickly had his lawyers issue a cease and desist notice,
8:49 am
demanding the bachmann camp never trumpet his song again. >> almost always republicans, and almost always a liberal leaning artist who feels like their concept, their art is being co-opted by someone they disagree with. >> reporter: and it's a battle that stretches back to at least the '84 campaign. that's when president reagan locked horns with bruce springsteen over the boss' big hit "born in the usa." in 2009, almost 30 years later, the memory still rankles springsteen, who talked to "the early show" about why. >> the reagan administration came in and tried to co-opt the song and misinterpreted it. so i was learning very quickly that you had to be aggressive and assert control of your work as best as you could. >> the reagan thing was kind of hilarious because, you know, "born in the usa" is actually not -- it's not as triumphant a song as it might sound like. it's sort of a bit per sweet tale of like a vietnam vet who's really kind of got disillusioned and strug struggled to find his
8:50 am
way so i think reagan kind of missed the point on that song. >> reporter: the last time that candidate and campaign theme really clicked may have been in 1992 when bill clinton relentlessly pushed the fleetwood mac message, don't stop thinking about tomorrow. petty's music was also preyed on during the 2000 campaign, when george w. bush blasted the heartbreakers' "i won't back down" at rallies. one letter to bush's lawyers, and he did. in 2008, john mccain's camp made a curious musical choice for their candidates theme, "running on empty" by jackson browne. browne accepted an apology after the campaign was over, presumably on empty at that point. there's a lesson in all this for candidates. perhaps when it comes to their musical choices, the classics are the way to go. now democratic candidates haven't gotten the kind of pushback that republicans have, since most people in the music industry support democrats, and i guess they don't really mind when it's a democrat who's blasting their song. republicans, though, chris, have
8:51 am
had better luck with country music. and since you know a lot of country music is about country and flags and god, it works out pretty well for them. chris? >> no one's gotten to tom petty for free falling, though? >> not yet? >> thank you very much, jan crawford for us in washington. twofer tuesday with jan today. >> that was. american girl is actually my favorite john petty song. it's my happy hour song in florida. we still have the fourth of july spirit this morning. how about we finish things off with a little fireworks. here's a look at some of the sights and sounds of last night's celebrations. have a great day. your local news is next. ♪ >> right now, in small towns and big cities all across america, folks are getting together in their backyards, raising flags, firing up grills, and enjoying time with family and with friends. >> happen hi fourth of july. >> just turns out everybody, brings outed good out of everybody. >> through democracy and individual rights, ordinary
